for. what does it say that president obama is proceeding with that nomination despite some of the controversies that emerged when he they floated the trial balloon earlier? >> well, in washington we can tell a lot more about somebody's intent by what they do than what they say. what we've heard a lot said of the white house of late is that they're interested in reaching out to republicans and forming accords and looking to get past some of the partisan bickering that's gone on back and forth. what the president has done today in nominating mr. perez for this job was to throw down the gauntlet to republicans who-- for them, as you say, he is the embodiment of a kind of eralism that they say that the core of what's wrong with the obama administration. there are other people who probably share every bit of mr. perez's views as relates to the use of the law, labor unions, empowering labor unions, fighting against employers who don't want to offer benefits and union access. there's probably somebody who does all of those things, but isn't as controversial as mr. perez, but in ch

, the obama administration said that we love to have the flexibility to go in and slice the funding as we see fit, as it should be be managed, we don't have that flexibility because of the way the law is written. so there is talk providing that in military areas, but in areas like this it's hard to see unless there's a ground swell for a short-term solution to he restore the money. >> greta: and i thought the republicans offered the flexibility to the white house and white house declined it. >> they offered it on the defense side and it may happen. they said they want it as part of a broader package over the sequester, but we're getting to the point look, the sequester is the law, it's happened, the cuts are implemented. i think there's going to be more pressure to say, wait a second, back this up and find it in the civilian area and find something that shouldn't be cut and we cut it. >> greta: or find $137,000 whatever the number is, in waste in the department of education and they won't. thank you. >> thank you. >> greta: on capitol hill, a debate the homeland security department released 2

million-vote margin between mitt romney and president obama. there's also some reference to the policy there. but it's unclear exactly what that would mean or where it would go. look, this just falls within the narrative of everything we're seeing in this country. as more and more republicans, more and more democrats and the american public evolves and has evolved quite quickly on this issue. and it's time quite frankly for our elected leaders in washington to catch up with the rest of the country. >> rock on, human rights campaign president, chad griffin, thanks for coming on the show. >> pleasure to be here, thank you, alex. >>> hash tag now is the time, it could be mantra for middle east peace. we will ask the new republican's ben birnbaum about the fierce urgency of a two-state solution when he joins us live from tel aviv, just ahead. hey, our salads.

and dislike they have for republicans. a lot of it, i think republicans thought, well post-obama they would be able to talk more frankly with black people. go into these communities and neighborhoods and sort of make amends. but i think they are really underestimating the hangover of all of the disrespect. >> and the hangover of the paul ryan budget. that would disproportionately -- >> and also obama care which is amazingly popular. incredibly popular among african-americans, latinos and asian americans and the republicans want to repeal it, still. >> and eugene is right. it goes back to the central problem in the autopsy. and that is, this is, they're approaching this as a marketing problem. and that somehow if we change the color of the cereal box, that inside the cereal will taste much better and sell better. this isn't about hiring more walmart greeters, right? this is about having them come into communities with a different message. that's what's going to be fundamentally hard. look, i -- took part in a really long, tough primary in 2007 and 2008 with hillary clinton. it went the dista
. the quest does president obama think of the congressional progressive caucus? my opinion, he likes it i don't think the president believes that crew is fanatical because they want what he wants. by the way, the far left kooks do want to cut one thing, defense spending. they want to bring that back down to 2006 level. somewhere in iran is cheering. there comes a point when americans are going to have to decide what country, what kind of country they want. even taking half of what affluent americans earn, feds couldn't possibly afford what the far left wants to provide. so we would eventually become greece or cyprus if the u.s. dollar collapses and people stop lending us money. some conservatives believe that's exactly what the far left wants. a collapse of the entire capitalistic system. some on the right believe that president obama is actively working toward that. certainly senator bernie sanders of vermont wants socialism in this country and so do most of his compatriots on the crazy caucus. yet, americans continue to elect them. that's the memo. now for the top story tonight. reaction. j
ever before. with all of this mind, i think it's safe to say president barack obama would pose the following question he may answer it slightly different today. >> what have you accomplished? >> well, a couple of key things, i think that we've restored america's standing in the world. that's confirmed by polls. >> sean: the president may want to check the polls again, in the three plus years that have passed since he made that statement, america' standing has diminished. why? because he's been interested in playing golf with tiger, palling around with jay-z and beyonce and now four years of his presidency we're able to report for the first time our commander-in-chief has finally stepped foot in israel. welcome, mr. president. earlier today the president met face-to-face with both israeli president shimone peres and benjamin bb netanyahu and took questions from his friends in the lame stream media and did not have an explanation why he's done nothing to promote peace in the middle east. >> meeting none of these challenges will be easy, ultimately it's a hard problem. it is a har
obama. we need do something about guns in this country. on o thursday, it was announced that dianne feinstein's assault weapons ban would be dropped. we learned it didn't matter that the majority of americans support the ban. the proposal couldn't make it past the u.s. senate. senate majority leader reid said he doesn't have the votes. didn't have the republican votes. he didn't have the democratic votes and no amount of public shaming could change that fact. >> quite honestly, i'm really aashamed to see that congress doesn't have the guts to stand up, make a change and put a ban on these type of weapons and universal background checks. >> with the assault weapons ban out of picture for the time being, the focus is now on those universal background checks. the overwhelming majority of americans are for universal background checks. 88% of voters say they support these checks according to the latest polling from quinnipiac. as for gun owners, 85% of gun owners support background checks. late last night majority heard harry reid issued this statement, i want to be clear in order to be

maimed or crippled by bush's war. in 2002 before the war began, a young state senator named barack obama came out to oppose the invasion of iraq. at a time when few politicians on the left were showing that kind of courage. when he was running for president a few years later, he promised to end the iraq war, and in 2011, he did. >> as president, i want us to fight on the right battlefield. and what that means is getting out of iraq. >> the long war in iraq will come to an end by the end of this year. across america, our servicemen and women will be reunited with their families. today, i can say that our troops in iraq will definitely be home for the holidays. >> our troops are home. the iraq war is over. but today too many republicans haven't learned the lessons of this tragedy. dick cheney himself says he has no regrets. >> it is a wartime situation. it was more important to be successful than it was to be loved. if i had to do it over again, i would do it in a minute. >> and here's what a new republican congressman, a veteran considered a rising star in the party, said just last week.
, apologized for nine deaths and vowed to pay their family. at one point mr. obama, just before leaving for jordan, got on the phone with both leaders and they spoke. one senior american official said, this is obama diplomacy at work. the leaders agreed to restore normal relations. so that is real, tangible success and it shows the success of the trip. but then there are symbolic successes. today he went to former israeli prim minister's grave. he was assassinated by an extremist. as is customary in a jewish tradition, he placed a stone on the grave but this stone had powerful symbolism. it came from the martin luther king memorial in washington. the president, connecting one civil rights and human rights leader to another, it's the melting of history, disconnection, the connection of the civil rights movement. that's the president brought throughout his trip. >> the story of the exodus was perhaps the central story, the most powerful image about emerging from the grip of bondage to reach for liberty and human dignity, carried from slavery through the civil rights movement into today. >
simpson-bowles, and they could never openly clear for obama care or the ryan budget. and the debt also -- >> hopes for a grand bargain were dashed. >> yes, the same thing, it is unexamined on some level. secondarily, if you say deficit reduction, the partisan are leeched out. we are talking about whether it will work to balance the budget. if along the way 35 million become uninsured, that's sad but we don't talk about it because cbo didn't mention it in the score. that's the great trick of paul ryan to recognize if you only talk about budget deficit, where does your budget put the deficit 20, 30 years from now, the amount of things you sneak in under that cloak that you can never put into the conversation in a serious way in normal times is tremendous. that's the central political innovation of his career. >> the favorite thing in the accounting discussion is compare the government to a family, saying you couldn't -- well, families do run debt, they cannot afford to buy their houses for cash, so they have a thing called a mortgage, which is the national debt of the family in effe
